It’s still a man’s world in the communications field. Fewer than one in five board members of the largest communication companies are women, according to a study conducted by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. Men account for more than three in four of the top executive positions across four different communication company sectors. “With few exceptions, we have not moved beyond tokenism in the number of women in top leadership positions or serving on the boards of communications companies,” said Susan Ness, former FCC commissioner and director of the information and society section of the Annenberg Public Policy Center. Clear Channel has no women and Viacom has only two women on their boards, according to the study, taken from data found in SEC filings and annual reports.
